Trail Etiquette & Safety

Trail Etiquette & Safety


Snowshoeing and Walking

Walkers are allowed on the two dog trail in Aspen and Snowmass, and also on the Marolt Open Space.  Otherwise we ask that you use all of our other trails with skis on your feet!
Snowshoeing is allowed on our groomed trails, but please do not walk on the classic ski tracks, and stay to the edge of the trail, especially in soft conditions.


Fat tire bikes are not permitted on the Nordic ski trail system, with the exception of the Rio Grande Trail and the Marolt Open Space.

Additionally, the City of Aspen and Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association have developed a new fat-bike trail loop around the Aspen area, and information can be found here.  Please take a moment to read the rules and recommendations for this trail.

Motorized Vehicles

No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail system.

Have Fun, Be Safe

Remember sunscreen, water, and warm layers, especially if you are venturing onto the Owl Creek Trail.

Private Property

Many of our trails cross private property, and we are grateful for the support of local landowners.  Skiing off trail jeopardizes our access to ski, so please stay on the groomed trail, especially on the Owl Creek Trail.
